[R] paper size

Sorry for not making myself clear. I am actually using the print manual to
print instead of win.print. When I tried to print with win.print, I was not
able to send the print job to the printer. Why?

Please do follow the help you are given. If I do

I get a layout of plots filling a US letter page.  You will not get this
if you use the Print menu from a windows() device: that prints to the
default size.

It would have been much easier to help if you had said exactly how you
were trying to print on what platform.
